Winter climbing on Ben Nevis is world renowned for its level of challenge and reward and has some of the most famous routes in the world on its north face. Why not try your hand at something a bit different and book your guided winter climbing experience.
Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the UK and in winter even the main track is a very serious undertaking that requires a different set of skills. Climbing Ben Nevis in winter is a challenging day out but still very attainable for all kinds of levels and we are available to guide you to the summit safely in winter conditions. The main route up Ben Nevis is called the 'tourist track' but don't let the name fool you, the path has about 1300m of ascent and descent and is approximately a 16km round trip. Average climbing times in winter range from 7-10 hours and although it is achievable for most people you do need to be exercising regularly before you make an attempt, to make the route and your day feel more enjoyable.
A Winter ascent of Ben Nevis will potentially require the use of Crampons and an Ice axe. If you don't have these, don't worry. We can organise this with our local Cotswolds store and show you how to use them on the day.
